1
Wash 500 grams of lemons thoroughly and pat dry. Cut each lemon into 8 equal pieces and remove the seeds.
2
In a large mixing bowl, combine the lemon pieces with 100 grams of salt. Mix well and transfer the mixture to a clean, dry glass jar. Cover the jar with a muslin cloth and let it sit in the sun for 3-4 days, stirring once a day.
3
After 3-4 days, the lemons should have softened. Now, prepare the spice mix. In a small pan, dry roast 2 tablespoons of fenugreek seeds and 1 tablespoon of fennel seeds until fragrant. Let them cool and then grind them into a coarse powder.
4
In a separate pan, heat 250 ml of mustard oil until it reaches its smoking point. Turn off the heat and let it cool down to room temperature.
5
Add the ground spice mix, 2 tablespoons of red chili powder, 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder, and 1 teaspoon of asafoetida to the cooled mustard oil. Mix well to form a smooth paste.
6
Pour this spice paste over the softened lemons in the jar. Mix well, ensuring all the lemon pieces are coated with the spice paste.
7
Cover the jar with a muslin cloth and let it sit in the sun for another 7-10 days, stirring once a day. The pickle will be ready once the lemon pieces have absorbed the spices and the oil has thickened.
8
Store the nimbu ka achar in a clean, airtight container and enjoy it with your meals.
